    Bonded rescue conures

    I kind of inherited a pair of green cheeks after their owner (family friend) could not keep them anymore. They have been in the same cage together since the original owner got them (3-4 years) and are now bonded. I've been training them every day for a few months now, but when it comes to cage...

    Hello from Pineapple!

    Hello! I am excited to be a part of the community here. :) We have had our sweet pineapple green cheek conure, who we named Pineapple, for about 3 months. We rescued our sweet guy. He came to our backyard to sit in our tree on 2 different days. My dad, who previously owned birds, went out and...

    Mediating the mess

    So this might be a foolish question but here it goes… How do you experienced owners keep the house clean? We have a 7 month old conure who loves to play in and outside of his cage. We have a relatively small open concept house which means he does all of his living where we do too. I’m not...

    Is this normal?

    My conure has this weird feather and he’s acting like he’s sore. I can’t tell what it is? Should I take him to a vet?

    Bird doing weird thing with his tongue?

    I am very confused. My green cheek conure seems to be itching his tongue a lot (?). I've only noticed it since yesterday, and it looks very unusual, he sticks out his tongue and then uses the tip of his beak or sometimes the bars of his cage to scratch it. I've seen this behavior only once...

    Plucking/barbering or molting?

    Hey, I registered for this site cause I was wondering if my GCC is just having a rough molt or is barbering/plucking Here's an older video (September 2nd) of him picking at the area Here's a new video of him picking at the area. It's worse quality than the first vid but I took pictures...

    Hello, you can call me by my username and this is Echo my (Yellow-sided) Green Check Conure: I got him a few months ago, when he was 2-3 months old. He seems to have bonded with me well but I thought I should join a Forum just in case. I have done a lot of research on articles as well as many...

    How often does your bird stand on one foot?

    Hi all, I'm wondering this at the moment. It feels like my green-cheek spends most of his day on one foot lately. He alternates between them and uses them fine so I'm not concerned about a specific foot, but he does seem to be doing it quite often. I'm paranoid after his many vet visits these...

    Hey guys, I adopted a pair of green cheek conures from a local breeder some 2 weeks ago. They are a boy (Mac) and a girl (Linux), both hatched mid April this year.

    I've been looking for a bird safe hair dryer. I know that it can't have teflon, but most of the non teflon ones I see say they're "ionic"? I looked it up and saw a thread from yeaarrsss ago saying that it was bad, but I couldn't find any other info. Does anyone know about this? What hair dryer...

    Conure or parrotlet?

    I'm planning on getting a bird in the future and I think I'm going to get a conure but the parrotlet is in the back of my mind. I want a bird that is very social and silly, which spiecies is generally more social, I also wonder if it is a good idea to get a parrotlet when I have two budgies, I...

    Metacam/meloxicam dosage question

    Hi all, I'm sorry to bother, but my green-cheek conure was prescribed 0.05ml of meloxicam/metacam twice daily by the vet and I accidentally gave him 0.07 or 0.08..? I'm not entirely sure how much he swallowed. I had to give him twice because the first time he shook his head and threw it all...

    Urgent Conure injured by Severe Macaw

    Hi, My Penny (YSGC) was grabbed on her R side by my severe macaw, Q, when Penny invaded his space yesterday. I was in the bathroom and heard Penny shriek - and found her at the bottom of the macaw’s cage. Nothing even close to this has never happened in the over 30 yrs I’ve had parrots. Trust...

    Introducing birds!

    I have a one and half year old GCC, Kiwi, and I got another one who I've named Goose not too long ago. We're not sure exactly how old he is but he's definitely younger than one. I introduced them to each other for the first time yesterday, and at first they were kinda just staring at each other...
